Interior

As it's the top model in the 911 Carrera range, the GTS comes well equipped, especially so by the usually minimal Porsche standards. The design and layout of the interior are the same as a standard 911 but the first thing you notice is that there are no back seats (not that the back 'seats' are exactly expansive anyway) which helps the GTS to shed five kilograms. You can however have the seats fitted for no extra charge and you can also opt for a 90-litre fuel tank (which is also a no-cost option) boosting the range compared to the standard 67-litre tank.

The main standout feature in the GTS is the use of Alcantara with the centre section of the sports seats, the steering wheel rim, the handbrake lever and door handles all trimmed in the lightweight material. There are still some question marks about whether it works as a steering wheel material, it tends to wear quite quickly and then isn't as nice to touch compared to leather, but it certainly makes the interior feel different.

The GTS also gets the new three-spoke 'SportDesign' steering wheel makes its debut in the Carrera GTS. It was previously only available on cars fitted with the PDK gearbox, but now comes on manual version of the GTS and looks far more modern and stylish than the standard 911 steering wheel. Like all 911s, the seating position is pretty much perfect and there's plenty of adjustment in the steering column too, so you can have it nice and close even if you're tall.

Optional extras include sports bucket seats at £2000, sat nav at £1300, rear parking sensors for around £350 while the Porsche Ceramic Composite Brakes (PCCB) are a hefty £5500.
